Lehrhaupt, Adam I Will Not Eat You Illustrated by Scott Magoon PICTURE BOOK Paula Wisemen Book, 2016 (Simon and Schuster). $17.99 Content: G.
A dragon lives in a cave and whenever any living thing crosses the entrance he tells it to go away. As time goes on though, the dragon is getting hungry, so when a little boy dressed up like a knight won’t go away he decides he is hungry enough to eat him. The dragon comes out of his cave and chases the little boy, eventually the little boy falls and then the boy starts to laugh. Together the dragon and boy laugh and from then on the dragon spends less time in his cave and more time out playing.
This is an adorable book. The illustrations are cute and the message to get out and play instead of brooding all day is a good one.
